GCSE Results

As you are probably aware the government has introduced radical changes to the structure and assessment of GCSEs. A more challenging content has been studied by the current Year 11 who receive their results today. We are also moving away from the familiar system of A*-G grades to a system of grading with numbers 9-1. Courses have been designed for two years of study and are no longer divided into different modules. Coursework is no longer included in assessment. Students receiving results today took all their exams in one period at the end of their courses.

Probably the most significant difference that students and parents will notice is the new grading scale of 9 to 1, with 9 being the top grade. This year English and maths are being graded in this manner with other subjects following in the coming years.
Please see the table below:

Against this background of significant change I would like to say well done to all our students who worked hard with their teachers to achieve the grades they have received today.
Our initial unvalidated data indicates that 84% of students were graded 9 – 4 in English and 71% of pupils were graded 9 to 4 in maths.

I would like to say a particular well done to the following students who achieved excellent grades across a range of subjects.
Agneta Baranowicz, Oskar Rosa, Stephen Caayao, Alanna Dooley, Ellie Beale, Hannah Gaffney, Georgina Muroki, Eleanor Ng’ang’a, Darius Michienzi, Finn Trinci, Elizabeth Johnson, Estelle Cobbson and Aleksandra Wisniewska.

We wish all of our students the best of luck as the move on to the next phase in their education.

 

A-Level Results

Congratulations to our Sixth form students This set of results reflects the work done by staff and students in both A level and BTEC qualifications over the past two years. The pass rate has been calculated as just over ninety five percent. There were some very good individual performances including John Toop-Rose and Ciara O'Neill who achieved exceptionally high results.

Good luck to all students in their future studies and careers.
